The grand Irish bazaar of the United Hibernian societies will be opened at City hall, Tuesday evening next, by the state president of the A. O. H., John P. Murphy of Norwich, assisted by the other state and county officers, and Colonel T. J. Murphy of Bridge port and staff of the Hibernlafl Rifles. A good stage entertainment is prom ised for that night, and for the rest of the week an excellent troupe from Poli's theater, New Haven, will enter tain the patrons. Music by Bergen's orchestra, Prof Herr prompter. Re freshments served in the hall. The object of the fair is one that ap peals to the patriotism not only of the Irish people, but to all liberty loving people, that the Irish people of Water bury may pay a just tribute to the memory of the illustrious men that sacrificed their lives for Irish inde pendence. The rebellion of 1798, although re sulting adversely to the patriot army, is nevertheless one of the grandest pages of Ireland's unhappy past. The student of history will admit that never was a people moved by a higher or nobler purpose than that which ani mated the men that formed the organ ization of United Irishmen, organized by Theobald Wolf, Tone, who was the father of the 1798 movement. It had in its ranks the brightest intellects amongst the Ulster Protestants, the brothers John and Henry Shears, Thomas Russell, William Orr, Henry Joy MoCracken, Oliver Bond and the noble Geraldine, Lord Edward Fitz gerald and a host of others too numer ous to mention. Men whose social standing, talents and wealth would place them (did they desire It) in the highest position in the ranks of their country's oppressor; but they - sacri ficed everything, even their lives, for the emancipation of ' their Catholic fellow countrymen. So it is but Just that the Irish people should pay a marked tribute to their memory on the coming centennial of the rebellion. In order to do so this fair should be a success. There will be a voting contest each evening for a drum major's outfit for the most popular drum corps in the city. Grand parade Tuesday evening at 7: 30 from Congress hall. RECKLESS ROBBERS. After Blowing Open m Safe on a Train, They Wreck tbe Cars in Colllnion. ALBUQUERQUE. N. M., Nov. 8. At lantic and Pacific passenger train No. 2 from the west was held up by four men near Grants station, 95 miles west of this city. After blowing open the ex press company's safe, the robbers wrecked the train, which cauglit fire, the express, baggage and smoking cars being totally destroyed. It is not yet known whether they were successful in obtaining booty, but It is thought a large amount of money was carried by the train. The robbers had boarded the train at some point farther west, and when near Grants one of them boarded the engine and, covering the engineer with a gun, ordered him to stop the train. The coaches, were cut off and left at the stockyards. The rest of the train was then taken out a mile and a half from the station, where the express safe was dismantled. After robbing the safe, the robbers re versed the engine and made their es cape. The engine and baggage car ran at a terrific rate until they struck the coaches, which were standing near the stockyards. The cars were wrecked and caught fire, four of them being burned. Fortunately the passengers had all left ' the coaches before the collision, and none was injured. A late rumor is to the effect that the fireman, Henry Able, who was com pelled by the robbers to run the engine when the coaches were left, was killed by the explosion when the safe was blown open. Shot In KesUtlng Arrest. HOLBROOK, Mass., Nov. 8. James Boyle of Randolph, 23 years old, while attempting, it is supposed, to rob the store of George F. Wild, was shot, but not fatally, by Officer Webster of this town. The officer used his revolver only after a long tussle with Boyle, who fought savagely in resisting arrest.

"The Girt I Left Behind Me," which will be seen at the opera house to night, is one of the strongest bookings of the season, perhaps In the estima tion of those, familiar with the de lineation, entirely the strongest. The play has been one of the greatest suc cesses of the past five years in America and when it was produced in London two years ago, it took, the city by storm. ' "THE GEEZER." . Every theatre goer will hail with de light the coming of Donnelly & Glrard, who appear at Jacques' opera house for an engagement of one night, Tuesday, November 9. They present to us for the. first time the greatest hit of 1897, the spectacular operetta, "The Geezer," the very funniest of all - the funny presentations they have previously fa vored us with. - "HIS LITTLE DODGE." E. E. Rice will produce at the Jacques' opera house Wednesday night an entirely new and novel comedy en titled "His Little Dodge," and It will be presented by a most excellent com pany. . For the presentation of this up to date comedy Mr Rice has se cured such well known people as M. A. Kennedy .Henry Bergman, Harold Russell, Charles Sturgis and the Misses Mabel Amber, Sallie Berg and others. "ALABAMA." No play was ever more fascinating than "Alabama," which will be at the opera house Friday, November 12. It is one of the few plays that will bear seeing again and again. "Alabama" Is now in its seventh season, and its pro gress through the country has been tri umphal. Each season is more suc cessful than the preceding one, and no doubt this is due to the fact that the high standard of the company has al ways been maintaliled. - TO COMMERCIAL TRAVELERS And others who travel, being subject to our changeable climate.

Incident That la Wortnr the Pea - of 6enla. The story of a whole company of sol diers enlisting to be grafted for duty Jn bits to save the lrfe of a suffering lit tle girl is worthy of Kipling. It is, how ever, a true story from Illinois. A young girl named Flofence Connell in attempting to fill a gasoline stove was horribly burned.' Usually a person whose skin is so xnuoh burned an hers dies, but she survived, yet after six months' perfect oare and treatment was still unhealed. The physician in charge proposed skin-grafting. Two healthy brothers of the girl offered first. "Take as much as you want, doctor, to save Florence," they said. Twenty patches were taken from one, 44 from the other, and adjusted to the suffering sister's need. Then a third brother, who is cap tain of militia, company A, submitted to the surgeon's knife and contributed 33 patches for his slater's healing. And then his whole company volunteered for the service and offered themselves when needed. , The doctor accepted, picked out sev eral members, and warned tbe others. that he might have to call on some 'of? them. To their ' honor and credit not One flinched, but all reported for duty, and from among them 125 more grafts Were made. This has about finished the Work, but if more patches areneeded qualified subjects are ready. The girl is getting well, slowly but surely, and jhas gained 30 pounds during the last month. The doctor thinks she will be n condition to leave the hospital and go to her home "before snow files," and jthe soldier boys will give a serenade when she is well enough to the 'little jsister of the regiment- Boston Trana- trinK ) HOW TO CURE BILIOUS COLIC. I suffered for weeks with colic and pains in my stomach caused by bilious ness and had to take medicine all the while until I used Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea remedy which cured me.

SECOND ANNIVERSARY OF DUGGAN'S DEATH, ; Will Be Remembered With a Solemj Mass of Requiem on Wednesday Morning Father Gibbons' Touching Remarks at Yesterday's Service.

John Vaill of Town Plot Is maklnj some Improvements on his windmij and when he gets the job finished it U believed that the machine will be on, of the best in the Btaxe. , . A couple of Brooklyn men got lnt an animated discussion this mornlnj over the proper way to spell the nami ot a well known Bank street saiooi keeper. One said it ' was Dunphjl while the other contended thai thi was a mistake and that : the. nam! should be spelled Dumphy.. It w?u fi nally decided to submit the case to tb pilot. - ; i A solemn mass of requiem will M celebrated at St Patrick's church next Wednesday morning for . the laU Father Duggan, first pastor of St Pat rick's parish. This is the second anni versary of his death. In announcing the mass at the 10:45 service yesteri day morning. Rev Father Gibbon , spoke most feelingly on the relations that exist btween, priest and, people "Of all classes of men," said he "nonf seeme to be so utterly forgotten aftet . death as the priest. No matter , ho popular he may have been during Ufa the moment death claims him h seems to pass from the minds ot those amongst whom , he worked, except 04 rare occasions." The expression upoj the countenances ot the congregation plainly showed that Father Duggan 'I memory was honored and revered t a marked degree. . ; ' ; The condition of things about thi South Brooklyn school are not whai . the people expected they would be si this time. The road which the select) men started to cut from South Leonard street to the building, was stopped be: fore the job was completed, leaving thf place in what one of the nelghbori term "frightful shape." Of course 9 will be worse when the winter sets it and parents of children who will havt to get to the school in all kinds oj weather are highly indignant over tbJ affair. A prominent town official hat this to say on the subject this after noon: "It would cost a fortune to di what the people want done dowl there. They made a big blunder whet they built the school on its present slq and if things are not just right the . can blame themselves. It would be 1 good deal cheaper to move the schod -to some suitable location than try u make a road to It. ; This is a matte that concerns quite a good many peo pie and some scheme should be though! out . which would remove the cause oj all the cause ot all the fault finding about getting to the school ; ; .
